Burns Supper


The blessing of the haggis...and the haggis itself.

The boys give haggis thumbs up.

Of course I can't make my boys try it without trying it myself.

We attended the NE Scottish Heritage Society Burns Supper a few weeks ago with our friends, David, Rebecca, and Little Leo. We had a good time, even if we were squished in like sardines. Although I've attended many Scottish Heritage meetings in LA/MS, I had not been to any here, nor had I ever eaten haggis...until now! It actually didn't taste all that bad, though I don't think I will be eating it every day.

4 Words to brighten my day:

How funny- My Uncle Bruce and Aunt Chris celebrate Burn's Night every year {long story short, Bruce is my Dad's half brother whom he just found out about a few years back. Bruce was adopted and none of the other kids in Dad's family knew about him}.

This year was the first year that he told me more about what exactly it was- in the past he would send me invitations to come up to Maine to their Burn's Night Feast but I was always like 'Wish we could but we can't, sorry'.

Maybe one year we'll get to go!

It does sound like fun although maybe not the part about the Haggis... I have to give you kudos for giving it a try- not sure I could even swallow a bite!

It looks like you had a fun time!

What in the world is haggis?

Umm Jessica, My name is Rebecca not Elizabeth. But we had a ton of fun and are very glad you came with. Maybe next year we can get Bart to try the Haggis

SOOOOO sorry REBECCA. Thanks for pointing that out.
